No Denali this year :-(

Got my initial schedule from Alpine Ascents yesterday. I'm currently scheduled to guide nine trips beginning in June through early August. Because I'm splitting my work week between Vertical World and AAI this summer, all my climbs are 3-day climbs via Camp Muir/ Disappointment Cleaver. The biggest disappointment is that I won't be going to Alaska this year. Alpine asked if I wanted to guide on Denali and I said yes, but in the end it didn't happen. I just don't seem to have any luck with that darn mountain! A small consolation: I might help instruct on a 6-day mountaineering school in August if it books up - crossing my fingers! And for the second year in a row I'm not scheduled to guide in September. Hope that changes but at least  I'll have work through VW this summer (unlike last). Working in the outdoor recreation industry is certainly an adventurous tight rope walk at times...
